While such a tax could generate substantial revenue, it could also reduce the rate of economic growth, worsen the distribution of income, and erode the competitiveness of a country.s exports.DocumentIntergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, 1997Tutorial and discussion of the technical background to the stabilisation of greenhouse gas concentrations. Aimed at policy makersDocumentIntergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, 1997Intended to provide information on the implications of the proposed limitations of Annex I country CO 2 emissions for global CO 2 emissions, and the consequences of these emissions limitations for CO 2 concentration.DocumentOregon Institute of Science and Medicine, 1998Review of the research literature concerning the environmental consequences of increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide leads to the conclusion that increases during the 20th Century have produced no deleterious effects upon global weather, climate, or temperature. Increased carbon dioxide has, however, markedly increased plant growth rates.DocumentWeathervane: Digital Forum on Global Climate Policy, 1988Discusses the technical and administrative challenges for an international emissions permit system, including the issues of "supplementarity," enforceability and the potential loss of ancillary benefits. [author]DocumentWeathervane: Digital Forum on Global Climate Policy, 1998Reviews the basic scientific understanding about forests' function as carbon sinks and forest-related activities and trends that alter global carbon balances. They also examine the Kyoto Protocol 's language regarding the role of forests as carbon sinks and sources, and the use of forestry-based projects to produce carbon credits under the Protocol.
